Excellent daily use soap
Barrister & Mann is fast becoming one of my favorite shaving soap makers with good reason. This soap has a nice fresh smell that reminds me of Earl Grey tea and lather's up very easily. I generally bloom it for a few minutes and then face lather. Very good glide and I don't get any razor burn at all. I just ordered the Cheshire after shave to go along with the soap and hopefully it will have the same great scent.
This soap is high quality and is everything I have come to expect from Batrister & Mann. Amazing smell with a lather that is both thick smooth and slick. Will definitely continue to purchase these soaps in the future.
A number of months ago I purchased Barrister & Mann's bay rum shaving soap. I really liked the soap. It lathers up well and the tallow base is so slick that the razor just seems to glide across your face. My only problem was that I did not care much for the smell of bay rum. If you are into bay rum, I am sure the scent is just fine. I liked the soap enough that I decided to try one of their other scents. After reading the descriptions and reviews of their other soaps, I finally decided to give their Cheshire scent a try. I wasn't quite sure how a soap with Earl of Grey tea as a major part of its scent would smell, but I am glad I took that risk. Simply put the soap and the scent are fantastic. The smell is both unique and I don't quite know how to describe it other than to say it is refreshing. This soap has quickly become one of my favorites.
